An impressive and substantial family home of more than 5600sq ft with spacious and fantastically versatile accommodation over three floors with a separate two bedroom annexe.

Dove House is an impressive and substantial family home of more than 5600sq ft with spacious and fantastically versatile accommodation over three floors. The impressive home was built by the vendor in 2018 and is one of the largest, most commanding homes on Cloves Hill, a highly desirable address set amongst rolling countryside; it also benefits from the remainder of its 10-year new home guarantee. The house has since been updated with an extension to create an additional garage and a self-contained annexe, further increasing the flexibility of its accommodation, which is furnished with desirable modern conveniences including underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, a security alarm system and a stylish kitchen. The high specification interiors are beautifully presented throughout and offer great scope for personalisation.

The extensive accommodation is immaculately presented throughout and perfectly configured for family entertaining with large reception areas and the top floor leisure suite. The second floor could be reconfigured to create additional bedrooms, should an incoming purchaser wish to do so, subject to planning.

The welcoming entrance hall opens to a family room at the front of the house, featuring a bay window, alcove storage and an inset log burning stove. Adjoining the snug is a more formal sitting room, enjoying a dual aspect view and a focal point multimedia wall holding a recessed television alcove and a modern glass fronted gas fire.

The kitchen/ family room is a superb, open plan space to the rear of the property with two sets of French windows opening to the terrace. There is ample space for a dining table and a seating area, while the recently renewed, contemporary kitchen incorporates a range of base, full height and wall units, solid stone work surfaces and a large central island with breakfast bar seating and feature bulk head lighting above. The cabinetry was designed and installed by Creative Interiors in Derby and holds Integrated appliances, most being Miele, to include a full height fridge and freezer, a large wine fridge, electric oven, a coffee machine, steam oven with warming drawers, an induction hob with built-in steam extractor and a Siemens dishwasher. There is also a Quooker tap providing chilled, filtered and sparkling water. A utility room sits off the kitchen area and offers further cabinetry, space for laundry machines, a secondary sink and access out to the side of the property.

There is a study opposite the snug at the front of the property and is the ideal space for homeworking, enjoying far reaching countryside views. The study is a versatile reception room and could also be used as a play room or TV room.

First floor
The large, principal bedroom overlooks the rear garden and boasts two en suite bathrooms. One is a sleek shower room with solid oak floor, gold leaf tiles and tinted mirror, the other has a freestanding bath and is accessed via the dressing room, fitted with Strachan furniture with recessed feature lighting. The remaining three bedrooms at first floor level all benefit an en suite bathroom or shower room as well as dressing areas / walk in wardrobes.

Second floor
The hugely impressive leisure suite occupies the entirety of the second floor and is a versatile space, currently comprising a cinema area, a fully operational bar with wine storage, a games area and ample seating. There is a contemporary bathroom suite to the corner of the room, allowing for further bedroom accommodation at this level, should a prospective purchaser wish to do so and subject to the necessary planning consents.

Situated above the garage and extending to over 900sq ft is a very well appointed, three bedroom self-contained annexe, with a utility room on the ground floor leading up to the first floor apartment where there are two double bedrooms, a single bedroom, three piece bathroom and an open plan kitchen lounge diner. This is an ideal space for those with dependant relatives or older children requiring some independence.

The property is approached via an imposing gated entrance off Cloves Hill, opening up to a generous parking area, surrounded by well-stocked borders and a parcel of lawn. The triple garage is fitted with power and lighting, with electric up and over doors to the front, a WC and double doors to the rear opening to the garden.

One of the many highlights of Dove House is the rear garden, a beautifully landscaped recreational space, enjoying far reaching countryside views.

A superb, covered outdoor kitchen with a gas hob, drinks cooler, sink and base units and a more casual seating area, enclosed on two sides. There are two tiers of lawn, an upper level with an iroko wood border, planted with a number of trees, which leads down to the lower tier of lawn, as well as a further seating area and a shed.
